New California Prison Policy Endangers Female Inmates
California, a true blue state, seems to set the pace when it comes to irrational trends for liberals. This time they are trying to endanger females by allowing men, who identify as women, entry into female prisons. And the best part is that these men do not have to be fully transitioned, or even on hormones, they just have to identify as women.
“This is the bleak reality of a bill approved in the California senate by 29–7 last month (Senate Bill 132) that has been heard by the assembly’s public-safety committee and will soon appear before the appropriations committee: It would require the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to house, search, and refer to inmates according to their preferred gender identity. No doctor’s certificate or chemical or surgical changes are needed. And what if the individual is a convicted sex offender, wife beater, or stalker? No matter, the person must still be treated according to his or her gender-identity preference.
At first glance, the rationale is understandable. The bill outlines how transgender women in prisons are “particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse and sexual harassment.” It cites a study noting that they are 13 times more likely than non-transgender inmates in the same prisons to be victims of sexual abuse. And it references official data collected by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics confirming that in a 2011–12 nationwide survey, nearly 40 percent of incarcerated transgender individuals reported experiencing sexual victimization while incarcerated. To be sure, life must be tough for sexual minorities in prison.
But what the bill and its supporters completely neglect to address is the vulnerability of women. The bill does not include any data, information, or even a single reference to the vulnerability of incarcerated females to violent assault from males. This is striking given that more than 90 percent of rape and sexual-assault victims are women and the overwhelming majority of rapes are committed by males. No one has yet demonstrated how transgender women pose less of a risk to women than the rest of the male population does. But, at any rate, the bill as drafted fails to set forth any way to stop a male — any male, including sex offenders — who identifies as female from getting access to vulnerable women.”
It seems like there is an obvious flaw to their plan here. What’s to stop a rapist from suddenly identifying as a female? This is like inviting the fox to the henhouse. I bet there is going to be a surge of “trans” woman inmates with this new policy in place.
